Week 4 CFB Predictions

Jacob Myers, Chris Shutrump, and Preston Oliver

Last week wasn’t really good enough to care about predicting, so let’s just assume we got them all right.

 

Season Records

Jacob (13-2)

Preston (12-3)

Chris (12-3)

 

  1. Michigan at 13. Wisconsin (12:00, FOX)

Jacob: Michigan 28- 27 Wisconsin

 

  • I have little faith in TTUN, based off of their recent performances. But, they are off of a bye week and I think they will have all the energy to pounce on a highly-favored Wisconsin team, TTUN in a close one.

 

Preston: Wisconsin 21-14 Michigan

 

  • The Wisconsin defense hasn’t surrendered a point all season, and they will perform well at home. I’m not a believer in Shea Patterson. 

 

Chris: Wisconsin 24-20 Michigan 

 

  • The Wisconsin defense has not let up a point this year. Michigan went into overtime with Army at home. There you have it. 

 

 

  1. Auburn at 17. Texas A&M (3:30, CBS)

Jacob: Auburn 34 – A&M 17

 

  • I feel bad for A&M fans; every year they have to suffer through playing some of the best teams in football without coming out with many wins. Auburn is just better in this matchup, no matter how much the 12th man will help.

 

Preston: Texas A&M 27-23 Auburn

 

  • I don’t really like this Texas A&M team at all. They are still a year or two away from being a contender in the SEC. However, their home atmosphere will rattle Bo Nix, who has been good but not great for Auburn so far. Hardest game to predict this week. 

 

Chris:  Auburn 34-31 Texas A&M 

 

  • Auburn’s true freshman quarterback Bo Nix is off to a great start this season. A&M on the other hand, has one of the toughest schedules this year with a trip to Clemson and getting Alabama at home in addition to this one. Lets just say this: Jimbo Fisher’s squad will be an exceptionally good 9-3 team. 

 

 

Miami (OH) at 6. Ohio State (3:30, BTN)

Jacob: OSU 52 – 6 Miami

 

  • Miami lost to Cincy last week in a blowout, and Ohio State blew out Cincy with a shutout. Easy roll for the Buckeyes, especially off their roll against IU.

 

Preston: OSU 58-3 Miami (OH)

 

  • This is probably the easiest game on the schedule for the Buckeyes. Expect the backups to come in early. 

 

Chris: OSU 69-6 Miami 

 

  • I guess Ohio State really does get the first 85 picks at recess.

 

 

  1. UCF at Pittsburgh (3:30, ABC/ESPN2)

Jacob: UCF 30 – 14 Pitt

 

  • I can honestly say that I have watched a UCF game since their bowl game last year. But, their QB has thrown for 700 yards, and they beat a good Stanford team by 18 last week. They have a good offense and will roll over Pitt.

 

Preston: UCF 41-17 Pitt

 

  • UCF talks about how they should  compete for a Playoff spot, but they just don’t play good enough non-conference games to impress me. They’ll get an easy win, but they aren’t making the playoff. 

 

Chris: UCF 38-10 Pitt

 

  • The 2017 “National champions” will roll on the road against an awful Pitt team 

 

 

  1. Notre Dame at 3. Georgia (8:00, CBS)

Jacob: UGA 33-17 ND

 

  • Both of these teams have played nobodies (New Mexico, Murray State, Arkansas State) so far this season, so they both haven’t proved anything. Last year, Georgia was considerably better than Notre Dame, and I still believe that Ian Book is not a good QB in D1 football. Notre Dame is overrated, and somehow allowed 230 rushing yards per game to two not good teams.

 

Preston: Georgia 38-13 Notre Dame

 

  • On paper this is the game of the week. But Notre Dame is a fraud ass team. A disgrace to the college football playoff. Dawgs by 25. 

 

Chris: Georgia 28-16 Notre Dame 

 

  • We haven’t seen much of Notre Dame this year, But what we do know is they struggled on the road against a sloppy Louisville team and took care of business at home versus the Lobo’s. If I were a betting man, Ian Book won’t do shit against the Georgia defense.
